Governing Law. This EULA shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Texas without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of Texas or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of Laws of any jurisdiction other than those of the State of Texas. Texas courts will have exclusive jurisdiction over any dispute arising in relation to this EULA and you waive any claims of forum non-conveniens. By your acceptance of this EULA, you agree that any claims or disputes shall be brought only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class. You also waive any right to a jury trial.
Not Authorized to Do Business in Every Jurisdiction. Shell is not authorized to do business in every jurisdiction. Information published in this Platform may contain references or cross-references to goods or services that are not available in your state or country.
Assignment. We may transfer our rights and obligations connected with the Platform to another organization, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under this EULA. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under this EULA to another person with our prior consent in writing.
Waiver. If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under this EULA, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
